Our town doesn't skimp when it comes to celebrating Veterans Day. The Boston area has a dozen celebrations and ceremonies on the calendar this year, which makes us at Central Square Florist very proud. We've been honoring those who served in our U.S. military in one form or another since 1919, when Veterans Day was known as "Armistice Day" and centered on commemorating the end of WWI the year before. As it evolved into what it is today, so did the tributes. We have parades, observances and even 5Ks devoted to honoring our most important patriots.
But the fanfare can also come in the form of a bouquet of patriotic flowers, something meaningful, respectful and intended to bring happiness to the worthy recipient. Read More about Patriotic Flowers for Veterans Day »
